The Poet

by Trina Williams-Emigh

The poet took words
And fashioned a rhythm
Offering lyrics to carry it on
Available for singing
Its message is ringing
For faith
For truth
For eternity 

The poet took words
And created a stream
Breathing life unto its flowing
Expanding its swell
Demanding it tell
Of man
Of woman
Of life

The poet took words
And sculptured a pillar
Erecting strength in its stature
Uplifting its dimension
Warranting attention
To beauty
To passion
To love

The poet took words
And gave them depth
Meaning that expounds perpetually
Exposing its idiom
Sharing its wisdom
With soul
With abandon
With determination

The poet took words
The poet claimed words
The poet shares words
The poet is words
..The poet is words
